HC Deb 12 December 1911 vol 32 c2129

asked whether, in view of the fact that it is proposed to accelerate the date of the inquiry into the conditions of employment in the Post Office owing to the recent increase in the cost of living, he will expedite the Treasury concurrence in the Admiralty proposals on the Macnamara staffing committee's Report, to enable a reply to be given to the petition of the Admiralty and Out-ports Clerical Federation, dated January, 1908, observing that the pay of this body of public servants has remained practically stationary for over thirty years?


This question is receiving the careful consideration of the Government, but I cannot undertake to say at this stage when a decision will be reached.
